        A very nice, but pricey baseboard radiator. Lots of heat and its sleek lines are perfect to help it disappear along the walls. We have an historic home and worried that it might be too contemporary. But when the room is put back together, it's not jarring at all. Well designed to hug the wall and deliver a lot of heat in a small space. Perfect!

        The previous owners of this 1734 home had installed an earlier version in another room of the house. In order to hide the coils when looking down, they had an angled strip of metal fabricated to work. Runtal must have taken this hint, because this newer version has a perforated shield on the top edge that does the trick, making it even better than the original one we have.

        Bought two UF 12 radiators for a low temp hydronic system I put together in my home running off a hot water tank.

        The install was easy, I found that teflon tape alone was not enough to seal the plugs and the valves to the radiator and I ended up using rector seal no 5 instead.

        I purchased these because I needed a hydronic baseboard radiator and didn't want to use sharkfin as they look dated.

        My Complaint:
        On the 12' radiators there is a joint in the top mesh cover welded to the radiator and the radiator tends to flex more at this point. The radiators come with 4 mounting brackets. 4 is not enough as there is alot of flex in these radiators due to the length and I wish I had 2 more mounting brackets per radiator to keep them straight along the wall.

        I emailed Runtal a week ago about getting more brackets but haven't received a response yet. I guess I will have to call them next.

              Comments about 3 ft UF-6 Baseboard Radiator:

              A very nice looking and quality radiator. Inlet and outlet ports are reliably positioned. I have bought quite a few Runtal radiators and have been very pleased. A bit on the expensive side, though. If you want the good looks, it is worth it. The packing is great for the smaller units. The packing is the same for the larger ones, but can arrive in kind of rough shape because of mishandling, probably because they are quite heavy. The radiator is wrapped with foam wrap, so none have arrived damaged.

                                      Our master bath has been cold during winter for years because of an inadequate baseboard unit. The Runtal unit throws off a lot of heat and also looks great. The only drawback is that the Runtal unit installed isn't cheap.

                                                  These radiators are very high quality and have a very nice powder coat finish. The accessories are nicely made.

                                                        This Runtal UF-6 Radiator heats very effectively.
                                                        It takes far less room than the baseboard unit it replaced and sticks out away from the wall less also.

The bathroom is in the middle of the house where I want to replace the old baseboard with a 4ft unit. The sp says it is 1/2" threads on the supply pipe. Will this slow down the flow to the whole heating system in the house?

Each unit is shipped with the wall mounting, which is recommended to mount the units 3" above the floor. The pipes can not be piped from the rear, only the bottom or the sides of the unit. Consult with local code to determine if the valve shut offs are required, as not all locations need them installed.

You just need to match up the BTU output of the new radiators with the output of the old ones to get the same amount of heat. Several estimators are available online to compute how much heat your "oldies" give off based on number of tubes, water temperature and length.
                                                                        Runtal also makes excellent flat panels as well as baseboards. We have 6" baseboards in the bathrooms. We removed the wide old radiators in some of the rooms and placed the wall mounted larger panels in their place . They only extend about 2" off of the wall and actually are quite modern and attractive. You will get much more heat off of a larger panel vs a long run of 6" baseboard.
                                                                        Hope the helps.

You can come up from the floor or the sides and also mix and match. I have a series of three in a bay window. They come up from the floor plumb side to side in the middle and then back out the bottom on the other end.

I'm not sure what you mean by "steam generator supply" this radiator is designed for a hot water system. There needs to be a fuel system, a boiler and a circulating pump in addition to a working thermostat to communicate with the boiler to turn on as well as the circulating pump to begin to circulate the water. You mention about installing an attractive solution. I can tell you that these radiators are beautiful. Very clean lines and as far as the radiant heat. Pff second to none. I have cast iron radiators in addition to this one and these work just as well if not better.
                                                                        Hope this helps.

I'm not sure about using these on a steam system so check the specs on the Pex site and be sure these are rated for steam and also check into the pressure of a commercial steam system as it may be higher than residential.
                                                                        If all that is good you should be quite happy. These are well built and very attractive units. I especially love the low profile.

I used the chart from Runtl to determine the size of radiator, added 50% and still not warm enough. To be fair, the room has a large window, large relative to the size of the very small 3ft X 12 ft bathroom. My advice is to call Runtl about steam systems.

I bought a smaller version for a bathroom 3 1/2 feet by about 12 feet, choose a size 50% larger than the calculations on the Runtl website and the room is never warm. Not cold but cool. I would have bought one much larger, probably at least twice the size.
